Home: Cedar Shakes

A customer of our recently asked us what we think they should do with their aging cedar shake roof.  Significantly covered with moss on the north face, the customer had the choice to tear off all the old cedar and replace with new shingles or have the cedar shakes cleaned up.  This homeowner made the green choice and decided to salvage the roof by replacing the heavily damage north slope and clean the rest of the roof.  This helped maintain the character of the home, but more importantly it kept the cedar shakes out of the landfill.
